    Well, if you don't have it then you don't have it. If you have it, you have it - but like Debian had it for 12 years, it never claim that is actually LSB 100% compliant - you can run LSB compliant apps, but there are limitations...

    But yeah i don't know really... all that sound like crap to me, but linux fondation still wanna release specs - LSB 5.0 RC1 from few days ago

      What you're seeing in Steam HW Survey is some statistical noise.
      Proof? :P

      We do not know methodology, we do not know metrics, we do not know timeframe.

      Yes. You can be right. But You can not be sure. So You can be wrong too.

      Unless Valve change their reports and include some more data we can only be sure about trends.
      (Like nice boost to Linux after Steam for Linux release, then slow but steady downward trend. Now? Lets see for few more surveys. Maybe that is slow upward trend!)

        I just wish Steam runtime would soon start targeting Ubuntu 14LTS rather than 12LTS. Latter is starting to be pretty ancient
